Top 10 Greatest New York Yankees Players
The records, the honors, the achievements, the ultimate game changer, this is what Babe is all about. It's too long to mention ALL of the honors he achieve here, but one thing is clear, he towers head to toe in importance of making baseball today just like what he did in the 1920s.
Hit 50 homers in one season until roger maris smoked that record, still the best yankee
First yankee for 3000 best plays fture hall of famer and everyone loves him even other teams and people in other countries know who he is. Jeter is the best and I'm not trying to fight against the yankees because I am a yankee fan from brooklyn and I've been a fan since day 1. #DJ3k #YankeeNation
A prime example of what a pro athlete is supposed to stand for. He is classy, a born leader, and a heck of a hitter to boot.
I have about 70 different cards of his.
Only the best of the best shortstop!
Gehrig batted cleanup, increasing the pressure for pitchers to throw strikes to Ruth. If Gehrig had batted third in the order, with Ruth batting after him, their statistics might be reversed.
He was the true heart of the 1920s-30s Yankees. May not get the love the Babe did but was every bit as good a player and one of the classiest people to ever play the game.
Anyone who checks Gehrig's stats will know that there was only one Yankee better than him.
Gehrig is the best
Number 1, if he wasnt injured. He would have. Been the best home run hitter of all time no doubt in my mind that he would be the number 1 homr run hitter ever and barry bonds wouldn't have even been close
Derek Jeter better than "The Mick? " Let's get real people!
I have his card
Joltin' Joe at its best, here's his 1955 Hall of Fame Plaque:Hit safely in 56 consecutive games for Major League record 1941. Hit 2 home-runs in one inning 1936. Hit 3 home-runs in one game (3 times). holds numerous batting records, played in 10 World Series (51 games) and 11 ALL-Star Games, Most Valuable Player in A.L. 1939, 1941, 1947.
Why the hell is DiMaggio only 9th?! He's right up there with Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle. Joltin Joe is a true legend!
He should easily be top 5! The man was a legend and will be missed forever, no one could play like he could!
No one will have more saves than him, try to best 652!
Greatest closer of all time. He beat Hoffman.
Great pitcher and all around person!
Thurman deserves to be in the Hall!
I met him at a car show he's really cool and he's Mr October which is a very important month
No doubt the greatest misunderstood Yankee of All Time. He had so many headaches after hitting 61 in 1961, but to me he earned that place in baseball lore. Although not a hall of fame player, his number 9 was retired by the Yankees in 1984, here's his plaque: IN 1961 he became the only player to hit more than 60 home runs in a single season in Belated recognition of one of baseball's greatest achievements ever his 61 in '61. The Yankees salute him as a great player and as author of one of the most remarkable chapters in the history of major league baseball. Erected by the New York Yankees July 21, 1984.
One of the most underrated Yankees of the 1960s. 3 times he played in the Summer's biggest event the All Star Game and played with a 1962 World Championship team but also played on a last place Yankees team in 1966. But he played with dedication and heart. That's what a Yankee is all about.
Its possible he might get to the 3,000 hit club. If so, he's a sure hall of gamer.
Most underrated Yankee of all time, he was a great hitter contact and power, an excellent fielder, and a winner..
Gator was the best American league pitcher from 1976 until 1988. He had a killer slider which retired all the best batters in baseball, via K.
A call goes out to the bullpen and here he comes, its Rich Goose Gossage pitching. His career we're filled with saves, championships and awards. He was also one of the game's great clutch closers, here's one of them. In a game against the Seattle Mariners on September 3, 1978. He replaced Sparky Lyle in the top of the 9th with runners on second and third with no outs. Gossage then struck out 3 batters on 11 pitches and preserve a 4-3 Yankees win, a win that would later be important for it would lead the Yankees to their 3rd straight American League East crown.
